Forever Sunshine, ASN, RN 1,261 Posts Specializes in LTC. Has 7 years experience. Jun 12, 2011 I find working my 2-3 8 hour shifts a week is plenty for me. I will pick up extra shifts if someone needs coverage.. in advance. My days off are my days off. I can't be stretched too thin. I love my job and I want to continue to love it.
